Time Merchants

The clocks are going backwards again.
The pirates are in town.
Lock your doors.
Keep away from the windows.
Don’t let them whisper through the cracks in the wall.
Once you start listening, you are doomed.
They will take your family albums.
They will erase your laughter lines.
You will never cry again.
They will go through your wardrobe and change everything inside.
They will throw away
holiday souvenirs, cinema tickets and old posters
and those vinyls you keep hanging onto.
They will leave you sitting on your threshold,
beautiful and empty,
like a Grecian urn.
